makes it special is that we have a social market economy and we have focused on environment and climate issues. we will also try to make a good basis of that. and all of the other things that make europe special. what we need to do is to change what we feel is our core values. we need to do this come as, as i have tried to do back home in denmark. we have done three things. first of all, we have kept an extremely tight budget. we have adopted a budget legislation and we can no longer exceed our budget from here on turn year-to-year. all of this means that we have a very low interest rate in denmark, we have become a safe haven. a tight budget is important. the second thing is to be on a reform friendly. we have performed so much the last year that i don't think it has any comparison in our history. we have performed early retirement, and we have now reformed the benefit system. we are trying to reform the education system. we have been on a big frenzy. there then come i feel that this is important. we have tried to bring balance into our budget. at the same time, having a focus on the g
installations across the planet. africa is increasingly a drone base environment. a newly authorized site in the nation of niger will become the sixth u.s. drone base in africa, joining one in morocco, senegal, uganda, and a permanent one in djibouti. u.s. drone attacks ordered by obama have spiked particularly in yemen, somalia, afghanistan, and notably pakistan where over 360 drone strikes over the nine years, 2004 to 2013, have killed over 3,000 people. this data is not classified. and not even secret. but it is troubling. so troubling that the u.n. has just decided to launch an investigation on the impacts of drone strikes on thousands of civilians. question. will the u.n. human rights council rule that drone use violates international law do you think, pat buchanan? >> i don't think they l. if they do, john, it doesn't make any difference. but we really ought to be concerned about these drones. they're a tremendously effective weapon. they save our pilots and the rest of it. but the collateral damage, the killing of civilians, the killing of children, the tremendous alienation they'v

was to create a partnership with the afghan government a stable environment for long-term political economic and social development. however as we reported that program had not met the primary goal of extending legitimacy of the afghan government nor had i brought the government closer to people nor had it lost its stability. in fact my auditors found that each of the eight provinces with the most activity experienced a dramatic increases in the level of violence in 2006 to 2010. violent state is a useful indicator of stability and in this data has certainly suggested that the program was not achieving its intended goals. likewise in july of last year we issued a report on the afghan infrastructure program which congress created to leverage and coordinate the department of state, department of defense and a.i.d. resources for large-scale infrastructure projects in afghanistan. we found that five of the seven fiscal year 2011 projects were behind schedule and that some of these projects may not achieve the positive coin effect for several years if at all. we also identified some messes where

, we actually get to a better climate, a better environment. just a place where we are stronger as a nation, and where we're cleaner environmentally as a nation. >> you are talking about drilling. when the president and certainly the incoming secretary of state who has been a leader on climate change is talking about doing something about greenhouse gases, haven't the storms, superstorm sandy, irene last year, haven't all of these recent storms and the fluctuations in temperature taught us if nothing else, that we have a real climate problem and that we have to deal with this here even if the rest of the world isn't going to deal with it in china and elsewhere? >> when you say i'm talking about drilling, think about what we're drilling for right now. think about where the boom is in this country. it's with natural gas. in order to access that natural gas, you do have to drill. what it has yaelded this country is an abundance of a resource that they read. it's able to bring our cost down and able to bring about jobs and economic opportunity that we wouldn't have had. how do we pa
by the poor health consequences of the pollution or the anti environmental -- the good environment that is ruined by the pollution. those are called external realities of using something. power plants can use cold. it is cheaper and plentiful. the only problem is they are only paying for the coal, not the other consequences of burning coal. if you put a price on carbon, then using cold becomes a lot more expensive. then, using renewable fuels becomes a lot less expensive. a lot of economists, including republican economists, say you tax but you do not want a lot to reduce it. you get all the incentives for the private sector to figure out how to reduce the pollution and achieve the goals, because it is in their economic interests to do it. it is not the government running the show and managing from washington. it is the incentive out there to move our economy in transition it. a price on carbon could be a tax, a cap and trade, the exemption -- example is when we had the acid rain problem. they said they would not tell us how to do it. they will limit the amount of sulfur emissions
's a problem. >> economists always talk about. what is going on here than the see this environment changing in a fundamental way? >> what is confused as there are two issues. do you want a particular subsidy spending like aiden the you have got and do you wanted in the tax cut? actually, do you want the tax code in the budget cents and you want the irs to administer it? the first issue is whether you want the provision which seems to me as the same issue you have a threat spending treks spending. my action is the one item i do say. low income levels have given what is going on an income and to -- distribution. i don't like the budget accounting because it feels like it is a tax cut when it is equivalent to direct it expenditure, so it makes it easier to enact and we should recognize the same effects as the direct span the chair. most of the subsidies. i think the irs probably gets it administered as best they can. it largely relates to this budget accounting concept that it looks like a negative tax and therefore is not the same thing as larger -- it appears to be smaller government when is
and based on fact. obviously, when it comes to the environment, i think we have like-minded objectives. mr. harper and mr. obama have both set a 7% reduction in emissions. we have worked together on reducing emissions in cars and trucks. canada is aggressively moving forward on our plan to ban and phase out dirty coal-fired electricity, and i think we all share the need for a growing economy to create jobs. we share the desire on energy security in north america, and we also share the objective of protecting our environment for future generations, and those will be areas where we will continue to work together. [speaking in french] merci. >> thank you very much. >> thank you very, very much. we appreciate it. >> appreciate it. thank you. >> what i discovered as i got older and more mature, the worst strategy to achieve happiness is to make it your primary goal. if you make happiness what you are striving for, you will not probably achieve it. you'll end up being narcissistic, self involved, caring about your own pleasures in your own satisfactions in life as your paramount goal. what i fou

that confront this country. when i think of the current political environment, i cannot help but share a story that another jesuit educated member of congress and a fellow italian that i had the honor to serve with, a guy named silvio conte from massachusetts, told during the time we were involved in budget negotiations, this was during the reagan administration. republicans, democrats came together with the leadership of the administration -- reagan administration. we sat in a room in the capitol working day in, day out. everything was on the table. we had defense on the table. we had discretionary on the table. we had entitlements on the table and we had revenues on the table. everything. and we were working through it trying to develop a package. leadership made very clear that we had to get this done. every time we thought we were close, somebody would stand up, walk out of the room, didn't like what was happening and, you know, it got tough. and at one meeting where somebody just got up, we thought we were close to getting a deal. it was a senator from florida that got up and said, i can'
